Vogue’s Flapjack recipe

Vogue Williams shares her recipe for apricot and cranberry sugar-free flapjacks, saying: “These are an easy-to-make, healthy alternative to the sugar-laden commercial versions.”

You will need:

200g Medjool dates

100g sugar-free stewed apple

3 over-ripe bananas

50g apricots

50g cranberries

50g sliced almonds

1 tsp almond extract

500g rolled oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. In a food processor, purée the dates and apple sauce until smooth, then put into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the bananas and, using a potato masher, mash them into the mixture.
  4. Add the apricots, cranberries, sliced almonds and almond extract.
  5. Fold in the oats – the mixture should be firm but still moist.
  6. Line a 10×6-inch baking pan with parchment paper, add the mixture and smooth out evenly.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, then cool and cut into squares.
